Stability with God

I may not be rich, but God has blessed me with a roof over my head, a consistent supply of food, a supportive family, and a stable government. Nothing I do or say can ever pay for this. I don't deserve this more than the next person. So it is my responsibility to take what God has given me, and give to the next person.

Text Summary

Last week, when I heard about what was happening in Sudan, I had to stop and think about how blessed I am. Similar atrocities are happening around the world. There are places where grocery store shelves are empty, and here I am ordering out because I "have nothing to eat" when my pantry is fully stocked. There are people right here in the U.S. who are starving, who are homeless, who are in seemingly hopeless situations. However, God has blessed me with stability and with peace, which is an under-appreciated wealth. I could have been born anywhere; I could have been born at any time, but God placed me at this place in this time—that's a blessing. The testimony for this week, is that for no reason at, by no deserving on my part, I am here, living the life I have because God gave me this blessing.

About

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
